Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) is used through the ICES region. This course will give participants information and experience on the MSP developmental process through serious gaming (MSP–challenge) and spatial tools for defining value and zonation, but will also address the process design, governance issues etc.
The course is an introductory course and requires no previous experience from MSP processes, although experience from MSP processes is a benefit. Participants should be either scientists, managers or graduate students (MSc and PhD) with some experience from marine management and the issues related to MSP.
